The building and construction industry in Tasmania have welcomed the announcement by the state government that people considering entering the trade will now have an opportunity to undertake a Tafe-based training program to prepare for work on a construction site.

The 2 week program will be paid for with existing TasTafe funding and will help prepare up to 100 people to enter the construction industry and hopefully avoid a looming skills shortage.

The Master Builders Association (MBA) recently warned that thousands of workers and apprentices would been needed in the industry next year and this is the state government’s way of tackling the labour shortage.

These trainees will still need to undergo White Card training before actually being allowed to work on a construction site.
